After Emanuel Macron’s explosive interview with the Economist, those complaints need rethinking. The French president’s ambition and vision cannot be gainsaid. He spoke in sweeping terms of the “brain death” of NATO, called for a

The Kremlin’s multifaceted strategy in France

By Nicolas Tenzer, for Disinfo Portal France’s internal political landscape is ripe for the Kremlin’s propaganda and disinformation. From the yellow vest protests to divisive electoral politics before the recent European elections, the Kremlin targets the country’s ongoing political struggles to exacerbate social divides and shift public opinion against the EU and in favor of the Kremlin. Given France’s outsized role in both European and global affairs, the potential effects

The half-truth, a little of the truth and a lot of stuff besides the truth

By EU vs Disinfo Sometimes facts can be disinformation. Taken out of context, a quote, a number, a statement or a picture can be deceiving, while factually correct. Lies work more effectively, when they are supported by something factual; something real, something true. A picture, published by the pro-Kremlin disinformation outlet Sputnik, is a good example of this. Two smiling young men, in front of the burning Notre Dame. The

How France beat back information manipulation (and how other democracies might do the same)

By Christine Schmidt, for NiemanLab “French success resulted from a combination of structural factors, luck, as well as the effective anticipation and reaction of the Macron campaign staff, the government, and civil society, especially the mainstream media.” If France could stop misinformation, could the U.S.? A newly-translated-to-English report reflects on how the country handled misinformation and politically motivated document leaks in its 2017 presidential election and offers 50 recommendations for how gouvernements, société

In France, RT is getting no love

By EU vs Disinfo It’s been just over six months since RT, the controversial Russian channel funded by the Kremlin, aired its first French broadcast from a sleek green-and-white studio in the outskirts of Paris.
